Living Labs

The two Living Lab projects are a unique feature of the Global Responsibility & Leadership programme and provide you with the opportunity to apply your academic knowledge and skills in the real world.

During the LL projects, you work together with private and public stakeholders and learn how to translate a real-world question into a question suited for academic research, do the research, and then translate your findings back into recommendations for the stakeholder. As such, the LL projects create a win-win situation: you learn how to apply your academic knowledge in actual, real-life contexts and develop related skills (communication, collaboration, problem-solving, research) whereas public and private stakeholders get to work with talented young people that are able to provide insight into questions important for the region.

Examples of LL projects that you could be doing are:

  • Collaborate with the city of Leeuwarden to create social innovations to improve liveability in economically poor neighbourhoods
  • Address governance issues concerning greying in rural Hebei, a Northern province of China
  • Work on sustainable tourism in the Wadden area
